Nativen Bandanas!

We recently started a dye order with a great women’s american heritage workwear brand called Nativen
based out of NYC and want to express how excited we are about the beautiful bandanas they just came
out with! We dyed them in Madder/turmeric, indigo, and cutch/black walnuts. The designs are by amazing
illustrators and were hand printed in brooklyn. Check out their site. They sell great vintage clothing too!

Their website is…..

Also, checkout their STORIES page. They compose great interviews with makers.

We were honored to be a part of this process!

RED workshop fun

We had a great time making red/pink colors from the last workshop in Bryn Athyn. We used
madder root, cochineal and did a sample with brazil wood and used an alum mordant and an
iron buff mordant.

Bryn Athyn workshop: Focusing on BLUE Natural Dyes

We had a very successful and fun time dyeing blues last weekend in Bryn Athyn. We focused on using a naturally
fermenting indigo vat and also experimented with making deep blues with Logwood. Shibori and Itajime
techniques were practiced as well and the group made some great discoveries!
